Magna Carta is a document, eight hundred years old this year, that surprisingly few people have read, considering how important it is. Luckily for you, comedian and quizzer Paul Sinha (The Sinha Test, The Sinha Games, Paul Sinha's History Revision) has read it, and it turns out it's ace, especially if you love keeping your own timber and hate fishing traps in the River Medway.

In The Sinha Carta, Paul will explain why what's in it is in it - how it came to be - and guide you through some of its 63 clauses of medieval Latin. He will also supply some new, modern clauses, for a Magna Carta fit for Britain in 2015.

Written & performed by... Paul Sinha

Produced by... Ed Morrish.
